I often wonder how many leaks are really "unofficial"
since most folks today say . 2 Official releases for Win7. then might I ask
why did MS Official Release of "7100" have 7077 in the cversion.ini to chek and only allow upgrade from that "un-official release" .
Quote:
[HostBuild]
MinClient=7077.0
MinServer=7000.0
Going way back to the Win95 days, there was almost as many Official Release versions as there was also un-official versions.
PS: I love the Barley (have a brew on me) any problems.

The RCs are the combined results from several builds. What works in each is then combined together from the beta stages. The cversion.ini when looked at here shows the 4/22 date in the properties.

That I understand, but since Windows 7 7077 was not a public release,
then why did they do that. and yes that is way I say 7100 is a mixed bag of versions. all they did was throw it together as an after thought, then rename the version to 7100 and change the dates... to what they wanted. I my opinion MS is getting very sloppy with there programing code changes... i do not remember seeing all this CRAP in Pre-Win95.

The thing to remember is that the 7000 was the first public release being beta. The 7077 was the first it seems build from the RC branch being the starter or base for the public RC. When readiest the updated changes between the 7077 point and 7100 were compiled with the few updates in that brief period if any.

Once the retail/oem is out everything by that time will be uniform while the RCs are still in the last testing phases before RTM. Any last minute bug corrections, modifications will then be seen internally from that point forward.

The unofficial releases were still official to the parties for whom they were intended. They happened to get leaked. To be honest, I'm sure MS has figured that the vast majority of useful feedback is coming from official beta testers. Folks who have provided plenty of directed feedback in the past. Also, ISVs who are testing new hardware and software compatability are the folks that the interim builds are designed for. I get the feeling that MS pulled back on the no upgrade policy for the beta build (7000) because they were worried that if it didn't upgrade as well as thought, it might ruin the good will that Win 7 is getting at the moment. By limiting it to folks running 7077, they had a better shot of getting feedback from actual beta testers.

The only reason people use pirated copies is because Windows is way to fricken expensive. Its bad enough hardware is considerably overpriced...not to mention video cards...but having even a basic version with no features costing over $100? WTF Microsoft. If say the Basic was $49 (like any other general software you pay for), Home Premium say $80-100, Business $100-125, Ultimate $125-150. That is more fair I think. Heck, if the full on Ultimate was even $175, I would buy it. Anything past $200, I would say har, get me sword and pillage a non WGA copy, I arrrr mean WAT, har this is confusing! I need me some Rum to kill this Microsoft Migraine!

One of the reasons for seeing the "evalution copy" on the leaked builds and now the RCs at this time is for the developers and not internal testers and the RC being the public preview while the 7000s were specified "for testing purposes only' so people wouldn't expect the betas to run just like any other finished version of Windows.

What is seen and why the retail Vista and upcoming sees a higher price is from the 64bit version of the same edition being included in the same retail carton. That's two versions on one tab not just one of this or one of that. $200 for Ultimate one or the other, $400 for Ultimate for both 32bit and 64bit.

Are you sure about the $200 Ultimate. I was pretty sure that Retail Professional and retail Ultimate would carry both 32- and 64-bit media. OEM version only have one of the media, but you can get the other bitness for like $10 from MS.

I don't get the "It's too expensive" argument. Not from you Night Hawk, I'm just addressing the meme that seems to be pervasive on the board. Vista Ultimate OEM is $179 at Newegg. If you're building your own system, you would be crazy to by retail. $179 isn't that much.

Get Real.
